TOY BANK DRIVE 2018 

 

Toys play a very important part in a child’s life. Playing with toys enhances a child’s motor skills, cognitive thinking and imagination. All these aspects support in the holistic growth of a child’s mental and physical abilities. However, we envision a world where all the kids would get equal share of toys and time to play with them but knowing the pragmatic global social conditions, we know that ground reality is way away from what most of us believe and dream.

 

Toy Bank, an initiative under The Opentree Foundation is working rigorously since 2014 to promote “Right to Play” for all children. They are working in tandem with multiple organizations at different levels to ensure every underprivileged child should get the happiness and feeling of joy of playing with toys. Toy Bank headquarter is in Mumbai with a presence in Pune, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Delhi, Goa and Bhutan.

 

Arwachin International School understands and believes in the core ideology of Toy Bank and with intent stand with them to promote “Right to Childhood” for the underprivileged children. To show our support, a drive to collect toys of all kinds was conducted throughout the school with classes 1 to 12 participating in it. The initiative was a herculean success as a good number of toys in pristine condition got collected and they were given to Toy Bank as a contribution from our school. Children of all age group participated with great zeal and showed enthusiasm of highest level. They all supported the drive heartily which can be evidently seen in the final outcome which went beyond any expectation. 

 

Their conduct for showing such kind and noble behaviour was appreciated by the respective class teachers and each of them was bestowed with a participation certificate to applaud their kindness and principled intent shown towards their social responsibility. In addition, the classes who contributed the most were motivated by Toy Bank Trophies.

 

With this gesture, our school once again lived up to the very words we believe in – A holistic and comprehensive development of society by the total and nurtured enlargement of every child. We believe in what Toy Bank is working so diligently

and we look forward to support in their endeavour to make world full of happiness and smile for all disadvantaged children by spreading cheerfulness through toys.

Happy playing to all the kids.
